New open bluegrass session in Dun Laoghaire - on TONIGHT

Thanks to Aran Sheehan of the Dublin Bluegrass Collective for this poster image and news of impressive developments for bluegrass in the Dublin region - and by the way, for anyone who wants to learn bluegrass mandolin, Aran is now teaching it: contact him by e-mail. He writes:

... to make the world aware of the new monthly open session (strictly bluegrass of course) that's being held from 9.00 p.m. today (Saturday 25 April) in McLoughlin's Pub, 73 Upper Georges St., Dun Laoghaire.

It's our second month today and they have already asked us back for Saturday 23 May, so it's officially on and worth mentioning now...

Our regular Tuesday session is going like a storm at the moment, with fifteen great musicians this week and the surprise pleasure of Mel Corry, wowing the audience and musicians alike with some great songs and awesome banjo picking last week... That one kicks off every Tuesday from 9.00 p.m., in Sin É, Ormond Quay, which is our favourite venue for this type of session.

Both sessions are essentially hosted at root by the Dublin Bluegrass Collective Band and all our bluegrass musician friends, who really help to make these evenings wonderful.

The Dublin Bluegrass Collective will be supporting the excellent Swiss trio Mala & Fyrmoon in the Cobblestone on Saturday 20 June, as part of their tour of Ireland, which includes the Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival.

The BIB is delighted to note that McLoughlin's announce the session on their own Facebook in these words:

After the huge success of our first night last month of bluegrass music, we are absolutely delighted to be welcoming back the Dublin Bluegrass Collective to McLoughlin's Bar on Sat April 25th from 9pm! - These guys are really fantastic and add wonderful atmosphere and craic to the bar...
